murdoch, james murdoch and rebekah brooks on how much they knew about these phone hacking allegations and when did they know it and why didn't they put a stop to it sooner or be more forthcoming. they told lawmakers earlier it was one rogue reporter, an isolated incident and it didn't did any further than that. we know of course that it turns out that thousands of people may have had phone mail messages hacked and lawmakers want to get to the bottom of how much each of them knew. >> the other question is this whistle-blower found dead yesterday tragically. police are looking into that. what is the latest there? >> reporter: what we know is that basically police have confirmed that a man was found dead at his apartment. that man is believed to be the whistle-blower for news of the world. he confirmed that the editor of the paper not only knew about the phone hacking but actively encouraged it from his reporters. he was the only whistle-blower to really go public and confirm that this was the case. now, what we understand from police is that he was found dead at his apartment while his

looks like a real sovereign debt crisis for our country. >> i want to quote david brooks. quoted over the past few years. this is david brooks from "the new york times." the republican party has been infected by a faction that is more of a psychological protest than a practical governing alternative. if you ask them to raise taxes an inch to cut government spending by a foot, they'll say no. to members of this, tax levels are everything. members have taken a small piece of economic policy and turned it into a sacred fixation. if you were offered for revenue increases of some kind, would you say no because you don't want revenue increases? >> i would love to do tax reform. i hate the fact we use it for social engineering. number four on the contract from america, which is a tea party manifesto of sorts, is fundamental tax reform. so we're all for that, but this is a spending problem. this is a -- >> you would accept a very good deal? >> why would you -- >> would you accept a deal? >> would you talk about revenue -- >> no, in other words, saying we won't accept revenue increase under an

wolf blitzer, "situation room" starting right now. wolf? >>> brooke, thanks very much. happening now, a dire political crisis here in washington. democrats and republicans seemingly no closer to a deal. less than a week before the country is set to plunge into default. and the consequences could potentially be disastrous for all of us. i'll ask david plouff whether any progress is being made right now. and jammed phone lines crashing capitol hill as worried americans scramble to weigh in on this debate before it's too late. and a disturbing new study revealing a widening gap between minorities and the wealthiest americans in the wake of a devastating recession. i'm wolf blitzer here in the situation room. first to what many say is shaping up to be an economic disaster of nearly unprecedented proportions if congress doesn't break the deadlock and agree on a deal to raise the debt ceiling only six days from now. the white house warning today there's no more wiggle room and beyond that date, quote, we lose our capacity to borrow. if that happens, interest rates could go up, the value of

and it looks like unemployment lines are getting longer. >> with more on that here's jason brooks with kcbs and cbsmoneywatch.com. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. unfortunately, weekly unemployment claims surged higher last week up 10,000 to 418,000. this following a pretty big drop the week before which had sort of given us some optimism that perhaps the market was going to head the right way but this has been indicativity past three months to get a drop one week and then heading higher the next week after that. we have yet to see claims fall below 400,000 in the past three months. need to be below that point to indicate that job hiring is going under way in an ernest fashion. so that's a problem for the markets. a lot of earnings are out including a number from the silicon valley. intel reporting that it saw its profit increase 2% to $2.9 billion. its profit would have been higher if not for a couple of major purchases buying mcafee as well as infineon. and intel does say that it's seen an increase in shipped sales to pc makers selling their pcs toists with as well as an increase
should have known. when rebekah brooks, his right-hand woman in britain, who gave me my job, she was feature editor and i was looking at the same books we both had. we were spending $4,000 pounds a week on you know, private investigators. doing these kind of practices. it's just extraordinary if she was the department boss who then d you not notice an expens100e00 a year on this kind of thing and not even ask what it's for. her position is ludicrous. even worse than that, for her to turn round and initially andy could youson turn around and say we didn't know about it, it was a rogue reporter acting on his own and now five reporters have been arrested, i've been invited into scotland yard to be arrested three times and they were still saying, we didn't know. it was just the reporters acting on their own. >> rupert murdoch and his son james and rebekah brooks have agreed to testify tuesday at a hearing on the scandal. stay tuned to cnn. >>> a government plan that actually worked? how do you shutdown one of the nation's busiest roadways and not cause much trouble? we're going to sh
people have been writing about this. david brooks in "the new york times" had an interesting story saying this is the mother of all no brainers, that republicans could be squandering an opportunity. another sees it as an error by the president. where it goes from here, we don't know. we know the great eight, as we are now dubbing them, because we have to have nicknames in washington for these people, but the leaders from the house and senate republicans and democrats meeting with the president. a quick statement from mitch mcconnell, the minority leader. these are not about rich or poor in an election but they're about making washington take the hit and make tough choices for a change. not the taxpayers and job creators. very firm on their position. no new taxes and democrats and the president says with we need to have new revenues. so that's where the problem is right now. >> and brooks' comment along with other republicans is that in exchange for increasing a few hundred million dollars in taxes, they could be getting trillions of dollars in cuts. the president is going to be hearing fr
the editorial board of the "wall street journal" today to david brooks to charles krautheimer who have written basically they need to get on board with john boehner. if he is able to get the votes, then what happens next, congressman? >> well, again, that bill, the boehner plan's dead on arrival in the senate. i know the president's not%fgq g to accept it, because we're not going to go through it again in six months. and so i think they'll dipose of it, the way they dipoed of the constitutional amendment, the balanced budget amendment in the senate, and then the question will become whether they can craft anything, get 60 votes and get something that will pass over here. i think the reid plan probably would get almost every democratic vote, and so we'd need 50 votes, maybe 40 votes, from republicans to pass it. that's a viable possibility, but i'm really not sure that right now if mitch mcconnell stands firm and is able to keep his members in line, that's going to be a tough sell in the senate. and that leads the president alone to come to the rescue, and i'm one of those among the democrats h
